Saturday Creations ~ {The Key to my Heart}

I made this mixed media canvas for my husband for Valentine’s Day:

000_4653I hope he likes pink!

Here’s a close up of the Love You sentiment from the Sweet Pea Stamp set.  I stamped it on text tissue paper and adhered it to my canvas.  TIP – you can stamp it over and over on tissue until it’s perfect and adhere it later.  I can’t tell you how many times I stamped directly on my art project and messed it up!  Can you relate?!

000_4654I think this sentiment is just such a FAB font!

Here’s a close up of my focal point:

000_4656You can see the crackle stenciled circles, the micro beads on the metal frame, the micro beads in the dangling heart and the dripping paint sprays.  I call this key to  my heart because of the key hole and the heart.

I wanted to show you that you can use this Sweet Pea stamp set to make a clean and simple card or a more complicated mixed media gift.  I hope you like it!

  1. What an amazing mixed media project! Absolutely gorgeous! The “love you” script goes so perfectly with the text background and the subtle brick outlines…perfect mix! (What a wonderful gift…and you two are a beautiful couple!)

  2. I love that you made this for your hubby!! Matching the colors to your pretty dress was the perfect idea. I thought the scallop piece framing the two of you (so cute, by the way!) was a die cut, but it’s metal!! The is incredible Sue. Thanks for making the Sweet Pea set shine today!!

  3. So gorgeous, Sue! Love all the pink and the sweet photo of you and your husband! Pretty butterfly, flower, and sweet details! Happy Valentine’s Day!
